Artist: SUN RA
Title: God Is More Than Love Can Ever Be
Format: CD
Label: Cosmic Myth
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"God Is More Than Love Can Ever Be is something of a rarity in the Sun Ra catalog -- a cohesive album with none of the stylistic eclecticism and musical chair shifting many of the artists self-released LPs were known for. Recorded at Variety Studios one day in 1979, the albums five tracks comprise a solid jazz trio set. God Is More Than Love... is the only complete piano-bass-drums studio session in the massive Sun Ra catalog. The album offers an intense set of cosmic vagabond moods, reflecting the telepathy that is the essence of small combo jazz. Other than an overdubbed second piano on Days Of Happiness the five works were spontaneously generated and forever fixed: none of the titles recur in the encyclopedic Ra discography. Originally released on Saturn in several small press runs under the alternate title Days Of Happiness between 1979 and 1981, fully realized artwork was never established and the album never got much circulation, thus it has remained a largely overlooked session in the Ra omniverse. Nearly 40 years later, the record is long overdue for acclaim on its second time around. Newly remastered edition on CD and LP (with tip-on style jackets/ RTI vinyl)". - Cosmic Myth.

Artist: SUN RA & HIS SOLAR ARKESTRA
Title: The Magic City
Format: LP
Label: Cosmic Myth
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
2017 remastered/legitimate reissue. Tip-on jacket. Includes bonus tracks. "For this definitive edition, historical and technical notes are provided by noted jazz historian Ben Young, who restored and remastered the album with his Triple Point Records partner Joe Lizzi. Both men have been recognized for their extensive work on the Grammy Nominated Albert Ayler boxset, released on Revenant records in 2005.

First-generation Saturn pressings of The Magic City were monophonic. A full stereo version had been issued on Sun Ras Thoth subsidiary label sometime after 1969; however, it suffered from a technical flaw that prevented many copies of the LP from tracking cleanly through the first cut on side B. A 1973 gatefold LP reissue on Impulse featured reprocessed stereo. For this definitive reissue, Cosmic Myth Records used stereo sources which are superior to the Thoth pressing." - Cosmic Myth.

Artist: SUN RA AND HIS ASTRO INFINITY ARKESTRA
Title: My Brother the Wind, Volume I (Expanded Edition)
Format: Double LP
Label: Cosmic Myth
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
 "My Brother The Wind, Vol. 1captures Afrofuturist visionary Sun Ras initial 1969 encounter with the Moog synthesizer. The album has been meticulously remastered from archival session tapes and includes rare and previously unreleased studio material. Recorded in 1969 and self-released by Sun Ra in 1970 on his independent Saturn label, My Brother The Wind is one of several albums that showcase Ras initial reckonings with the then-recently introduced Moog synthesizer. Although the Astro Infinity Arkestra is credited on the original Saturn LP sleeve, only three sidemen were on the session -- reed players Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, and Danny Davis, with Moog performance pioneer Gershon Kingsley serving as synth programmer and technical consultant. The original 1970 Saturn release featured four tracks, which are included on this remastered edition. Features the complete tracking session of Ras Moog-centric single The Perfect Man, with three full takes of the title, including two previously unissued versions and the monumental 18-minute Space Probe, an outrageously freewheeling Ra solo work recorded on a Moog (or two) around the same time. The remastered editions include liner notes by Moog historian Brian Kehew. Technical notes are provided by jazz historian Ben Young, who also restored and remastered the album with Joe Lizzi." - Cosmic Myth.
